Course Description 

We are in an epidemic of brain imbalance. Twenty to twenty-five per cent of our children have brain neurodevelopmental issues. – 10 % classified as ADHD (3 to 1 boys), 2.5 % Autism Spectrum (4 to 1 boys), and 10 to 15% dyslexia. The common denominator is that they all have primitive reflexes which indicates a weakness or lack of maturation in the brain stem. This causes an asymmetrical development of the brain, one side growing faster than the other. The presence of primitive reflexes is associated with certain negative neurobehaviors. The integration of the primitive reflexes matures the vagus nerve which controls 75 % of the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). This causes too much sympathetic (fight/flight). These individuals are anxious and have sleeping issues. These individuals grow up and are anxious, depressed, and have insomnia. Thirty per cent in US have diagnosis of anxiety. Nine per cent depression. Extreme hemispheric imbalances are in bipolar (4.4 %) and schizophrenic (1%) individuals. We will demonstrate how to test for primitive reflexes and how to integrate using most effective techniques including laser therapy. 

Learning Objectives 

• How to test for primitive reflexes 

• How to integrate primitive reflexes 

• How to quantitate severity of symptoms and improvements with specific questions
